Few things are as frustrating as getting into your car during a rainstorm only to find that the wipers have stopped working. The good news here is that the rear wiper motor is pretty easy to replace and should not take more than an hour.

In this article, I'll go over the steps involved with replacing the motor. One thing you'll want to do beforehand is mark the location of the wiper arm as it sits in the rest position on the rear hatch. This can be as simple as laying a strip of painter's tape across the bottom edge. This helps by giving you a reference point when re-installing the wiper arm.

Begin by prying up the cover at the end of the rear wiper arm (green arrow).

Begin by prying up the cover at the end of the rear wiper arm (green arrow). Then carefully pull the ears of the cover (yellow arrow) off the wiper arm.

Note the position of the rear wiper arm and mark it with some painters tape.

Open the rear hatch using the key fob.

You'll need to use a plastic trim tool along the seam on the motor cover to release the lower cover.

Once the lower cover is removed, pull the upper cover off in the direction of the green arrows.
